Emma Roberts and Evan Peters are engaged. According to a report from "Extra" on Jan. 6, 2014, the couple got engaged over the Christmas 2013 holidays in New York City, and then rang in New Year's Day 2014 in London. Roberts was seen wearing her engagement ring on the New Orleans set of "American Horror Story."

Roberts and Peters began dating in the spring of 2012. They co-star in the independent movie "Adult World" and in the TV series "American Horror Story." Roberts has said in interviews that she and Peters began dating after they filmed "Adult World."

In July 2013, Roberts was arrested for domestic violence against Peters but the charges were quickly dropped after Peters declined to press charges, according to a news story that TMZ first reported on July 16, 2013.

TMZ reported that Roberts' arrest took place on July 7, 2013, in Montreal, where the couple had police called on them after people heard loud arguing in the hotel room where Roberts (who is 22) and Peters (who is 26) were staying. Sources told TMZ that "Emma and Evan were hitting each other and she was arrested because he had obvious physical injuries. The sources deny Emma bit Evan." The fight also reportedly left Peters with a bloody nose.

According to "omg! Insider," the Montreal Police Department "confirmed the charges were dropped and the case is considered closed."

A spokesperson for Roberts commented to "omg! Insider" about the fight and Roberts' arrest: "It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding. Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it."

"Adult World" is a comedy in which Roberts plays a recent college graduate who aspires to become a famous poet but instead finds herself working at a low-paying job as a sales clerk in an adult-entertainment store. Peters plays her co-worker who has a romantic interest in her. IFC Films acquired North American distribution rights for "Adult World" after it premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. The movie is set for release in theaters and on VOD on Feb. 14, 2014.

Peters has been a series regular on "American Horror Story" since its 2011 debut. Roberts joined the cast in the show's third season, which premiered in October 2013. Because "American Horror Story" is an anthology show with a completely different storylines in each season, it is unknown if Roberts will continue to be a part of "American Horror Story" after its third season.

She co-starred in the 2013 comedy film "We're the Millers," which was a big hit in theaters and on home video.

Roberts comes from an family of famous actors. Oscar winner Julia Roberts is her aunt. Oscar nominee Eric Roberts is Emma's father.
